You will find a nice balance between student centered constructivist learning and text dependent work. I generally focus on helping students create meaning out of text by habitually using evidence to support thinking. Keeping in mind that the text remains the vehicle, the objectives are usually a combination of skill building and developing depth of meaning.

I have been teaching in a suburb of New Haven County, CT for 11 years. I teach mainly ninth and 11th grade, all levels, including AP. My work is based on curriculum writing aligned with the Common Core. Feel free to ask a question! Thanks, Melissa
